RE: [DML] Re: Stainless steel finish

Here's the trick.
First spray the car down with SIMPLE GREEN and let it soak.
You might want to scrub it with a big long handled soft brush to work it in.
This is a degreaser so keep it off the tires or it will suck the black out of them.
Then pressure wash the car real good and it will shine like new.
Now go over your black parts with TRIM-SHINE or BACK-TO-BLACK
and your bumpers and other parts will be nice and glossy black.
I also invested into a car dryer blower, but you can also use a leaf blower
and get all the water off to prevent streaks.
That's how I do it.
